Your chance to salute health heroes

Torbay Weekly

Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust (TSDFT) launched their new Our People Awards on Valentine’s Day and are inviting patients, carers and members of the public to show their care and appreciation for their amazing staff by nominating them for the People’s Choice award.

Each and every day, health and care staff across Torbay and South Devon are doing incredible things to care for the people who use services, to support and look after each other, to encourage colleagues to develop and grow, to improve their working environment, and to make people smile.

The People’s Choice award gives patients, carers and members of the public a chance to show their appreciation. So, if you have received excellent care, service with a smile, kindness and understanding or exceptional service from one of their people or teams, why not nominate them for the People’s Choice award?

Anyone can make a nomination for Our People’s Choice award from today until the end of September 2022. All you have to do is tell TSDFT in a few words why you feel a member of staff, or a particular team, deserves to win this award. The judges will shortlist all nominations received and in November you will be able to vote for the winner from the shortlisted finalists.

Liz Davenport, Chief Executive, TSDFT, said: “I am hugely proud of our staff and the work they do to support people in Torbay and South Devon to live well and to care for them when they are ill or in need. The best part of my job is being able to share people’s kind words and positive feedback with our staff, teams and services.

“I am delighted to launch our new People’s Choice award and to give our communities the opportunity to say a public ‘thank you’ to all those members of staff, in clinical and non-clinical roles, who are doing exceptional work.”

Deborah Kelly, Chief Nurse, TSDFT, said: “Our People’s Choice award, supports patients, carers, people working in partner agencies and members of the public to show their appreciation.”
